Mud on the Mountain offers athletes a chance to get down and dirty atop the beautiful Laurel Highlands. The seven-mile mud run course winds its way up, down and through some of the most challenging terrain in Pennsylvania.
If you are ready to tackle the Laurel Highlands, Mud on the Mountain is the event for you. Join scores of others as you test what you are made of on the slopes at Seven Springs Mountain Resort, the largest ski and four-season resort in Pennsylvania. Across more than seven miles of body-breaking terrain you will traverse ponds, scale boulder fields, climb your way over obstacles and claw your way up impossible inclines, all on your way to a triumphant finish. After working to destroy your body, stick around for the Recovery Party in the Foggy Goggle, pamper yourself in the Trillium Spa and dine in one of the resort’s amazing restaurants, including Helen's, which offers upscale dining in a uniquely rustic setting.
We are going to add some more great obstacles to the past set of challenges used on Mud on the Mountain and we are going to add more MUD to everything. We plan to offer more than 25 chances for you to test your strength and get filthy in the process. Details to come.

Clean out your closet and bring your gently used clean ski and snowboard gear to Mud on the Mountain, May 10, 2014. We will be gathering your coats, gloves, pants, hats and more to benefit two amazing organizations – the Wounded Warrior Patrol and the Somerset County Salvation Army!
The Wounded Warrior Patrol was formed based on the desire to pay it forward to our wounded warriors of this generation, as well as to their family members, by encouraging their participation in our winter sports program. Every February, Seven Springs rolls out the red carpet for a group of soldiers and their families for a getaway at the resort featuring skiing and snowboarding, lessons, special spa services, celebratory dinners and more. Many of these great men and women and their families have never skied or snowboarded before, so your donations are needed to keep them warm as they try out a new sport.
From family tracing to disaster response, The Salvation Army offers a wide variety of services worldwide. Your donations will be delivered to the Salvation Army of Somerset County so they can be given to needy families and homeless men and women in the region.
Seven Springs is proud to be an economically vital and compassionate part of our community. We support out local charities that work to improve the quality of life for our neighbors and out communities.
Over the past three years, Seven Springs has supported and developed relationships throughout the local community, including Somerset, Fayette, and Westmoreland counties, as well as the Pittsburgh region. Seven Springs Mountain Resort supports many non-profit and civic organizations through considerable charitable and community efforts, specifically charitable giving, merchandise and ticket donations, and volunteer efforts.
Seven Springs directly participates in and supports a number of important initiatives. For instance, since 2006, the resort has contributed to 1,104 community organizations ranging from:
